Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"After that you can recharge it and pair it as if it was a new device and it works but it's an annoyance...Another problem I noticed is that battery life seamed to decrease over a month and it was somewhat easy to notice...Last it has a problem when you have two devices connected... it has some audio problems..."
_
"Audio failed in the the left earpiece of the first pair within 2.5 months."
_
"As audio headphones, the Jabra sport is OK, but not great."
_

_
"The audio control on the headset works nicely as well."

Button

Button:
"My only problem with it is that the volume button only flashes higher volume when pushed."
_
"It's disappointing that they did not include the up and down buttons that open up all the other functionality."
_
"I like this because corded headphones I've used in the past had the volume and phone control on the same button and it was easy to press the wrong one."
_
"I have found the button to be a bit of a disappointment."
_
"Pause hang-up skip mute button nice to have but not super easy to find and use by feel."
_
"There is a volume slider on the cord as well, but unfortunately there are no buttons for skipping tracks."
_
"The volume control with a slider but not buttons make it easy to adjust volume when I have my snowboard gloves on."
_
"Sound is pretty good (can't compare to high-end brands like Bose though) and they do have some nice features: nice cord that doesn't get all tangled up; an extension cord so you can either use it short (i. e. if you have your phone in an armband) or longer if you keep it in your pants pocket; multi-function button is pretty useful and so is the remote volume control; nice little carrying case which fits the headphones and the extension cord without any issues."
_
"I really like the cable construction, it has a very nice feel and the volume answer buttons are really good."
_
"positives-the wires do not tangle-comfortable fit-fairly good sound-controls on the headphonesnegatives-the volume control button is a slide, and tends to move while running"
_
"I like this because corded headphones I've used in the past had the volume and phone control on the same button and it was easy to press the wrong one."

Cable

Cable:
"When at the gym I usually wear a hoodie and I tuck the headphone cord under it; the problem is that these head phones have volume control on the cord and when I'm running the volume changes and I have to try to find the volume control over my hoodie to fix the volume (The volume control on the cord should have a locking switch to prevent this from happening)."
_
"I have no idea why people are complaining about the cord length."
_
"stupid Cable length ...the idea of the extension cable is not for me ...poor sound qualityone of the worst Purchasing experience"
_
"- the cord is heavy and bounces while running, kind of annoying."
_
"The extension cable seemed to increase the problem, but taking it off didn't stop the problem."
_
"This is because the cord itself is extremely (and unnecessarily) thick and heavy as well as different lengths for each ear."
_
"This problem is made worse due to the thickness of the earbuds themselves - the plastic is so thick that it's easy to pull them out if you accidentally snag the cord on your arm, finger, etc."
_
"EXCELLENT, just wish the cord was longer"
_
"-The flat cord is nice, and there's virtually no cord noise."
_
"I've been searching for an affordable pair of headphones that ticked off a few categories: durable, flat cable, over-ear, microphone compatible with my Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia), decent ratings, and let in enough outside noise so I can hear what's going on around me."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"He said it is very comfortable and does not slip off easily."
_
"This makes them more comfortable for me but may actually contribute to the degraded sound quality.3."
_
"That makes them easy to get on, and they're surprisingly comfortable."
_
"They are comfortable and fit great! "
_
"The headset with short cord still works fine and is pretty comfortable"
_
"They are very comfortable with great sound."
_
"If you are looking for a pair of durable headphones that you can wear on your runs or cycle rides, the Jabras are probably the best I've found in terms of durability, fit, and comfort."

_
"Pros:- Nice cables that are detachable- Good volume controls and phone controls- Build quality seems goodCons:- Very uncomfortable and doesn't fit in the ear good- I got 3 size adapters but only one of each (doesn't make sense because I need a pair)- Flexible but it bends back out of shape"
_

Design

Design:
"Unfortunate that attention to design missed in a critical area."
_
"I think maybe the design could be refined some, but they are nice ear phones and the sound is good as well."
_
"They dont even sound good bc the way it is designed, it is away from your ear hole."
_
"There are remarkably few options for earphones designed for outdoor exercise: you want them to hook over the ear so they stay in place, you don't want them to block out ambient noise because hello, cars!"
_
"They can be somehow better cause the design is quiet nice."
_
"The sleek headphone design is attached to an eye-catching yellow flat cord that can be shortened or extended with a matching extension cable."

Earphone

Earphone:
"Love the way the ear hooks are molded around where the wire and the ear buds are joined, as this has been the weak spot of all earphones I've seen and shopped for."
_
"The adjustability of the earphones is also very good - there is an almost confusing array of options for different ways to set up the headphones with the various ear gels and loops."
_
"I then tried using Logitech's Ultimate Ears 200 Noise-Isolating Earphones but the cords were too flimsy to use during exercise (although they work great when I'm perched in front of my laptop)."
_
"There are remarkably few options for earphones designed for outdoor exercise: you want them to hook over the ear so they stay in place, you don't want them to block out ambient noise because hello, cars!"
_
"Good earphones for working out."
_
"3 different covers for the earphones to choose from for maximum comfort."
_
"The sound quality is the best I have heard through headphone earphones."
_
"If, unlike me, your ears have a habit of spitting out earphones, and if you have unusually keen hearing and like listening to music at low volumes, then these may well be the perfect earphones for you."

Fit:
"I can see how people might get confused at how they work, or it doesn't fit their ears."
_
"PROS:- Sound quality is very good- Very FlexibleCONS:- They just don't fit comfortably at all, and I tried all the different size attachments that came with them."
_
"I tried the different covers for the ear bud but just could not find a comfortable fit."
_
"The over the ear part doesn't work well with my glasses and don't stay in place, so they just do not fit very well."
_
"Cord is flat and tangle freeCons - the flexible ear hangers dont hold shape well... they dont fit me that great and I find myself messing with them a lot."
_
"Pros:- Nice cables that are detachable- Good volume controls and phone controls- Build quality seems goodCons:- Very uncomfortable and doesn't fit in the ear good- I got 3 size adapters but only one of each (doesn't make sense because I need a pair)- Flexible but it bends back out of shape"

_
"Jabra headphones are complete junk."
_

_

_
"Great headphones, good sound for both phone and music."
_
"I did just want to point out that the description says that this headset is compatible with all devices with a 3.5mm headphone jack."
_

Headset

Headset:

_

Heavy

Heavy:
"very heavy and uncomfortable."
_
"- the cord is heavy and bounces while running, kind of annoying."
_
"The headphones are very weak in the bass and lower midrange, not producing much richness of tone even for non-bass-heavy music (and they're pretty much unacceptable for hip-hop even with heavy EQ bass boosting)."
_
"This is because the cord itself is extremely (and unnecessarily) thick and heavy as well as different lengths for each ear."
_
"it's good sound and very cool appearance but it's a little heavy for the ear."
_
"The inline volume slider is a great feature the flat cable is a bit heavy but it does not tangle and it adds an expensive feel to these."
_
"Stays on ear well, but the nice heavy duty cabling is too heavy, and it tends to flop."

Microphone

Microphone:

_
"It's unfortunate because I really, really wanted ear-hook earbuds with an in-line mic and remote for a decent price but these simply don't fit the bill."
_

_
"The headphones are very weak in the bass and lower midrange, not producing much richness of tone even for non-bass-heavy music (and they're pretty much unacceptable for hip-hop even with heavy EQ bass boosting)."

Noise

Noise:
